    The irony of this is hilarious o_O. I missed practically every single trending bug due to keeping my devices on Developer Betas.

    Gone past 5pm in Sydney, Australia, iOS 11.1.2 on iPhone X. Didn’t even know about this bug till I read this. No issue here.

    why do you think an on-device issue would be reflected in a status page for their online services?

    12:24am here, none of my iOS devices are having this issue. Time to go to bed.

    Though I believe there is some truth to the above, this issue seems to be more a core function that should be the same across all devices.

    Not surprised: the "new and improved" (ha!) Notification center has been real wonky for me. Apple too focused on change for change's sake, imo.

    I usually don’t receive notifications late at night so I won’t know until tomorrow. As far as I know I don’t receive repeating notifications that are identical and occur at the same time everyday (if that’s the issue here). I guess one example would be a reminder notification to take your pills at the same time each day. It has the potential to be a very “interesting” day today if this really blows up. I’m just curious why it’s Dec. 2?

    When a company focuses more on diversity than product quality.

    To quote Apple „we dont think of the price. We think of the great value and user experience we provide to our customers“

    hahahaha, another week another bug on iOS 11. it seems like it is saver to use betas than final releases in Apples case nowadays. Sad

    Post makes no sense whatsoever

    The bug is described as local time-based, so why wouldn’t this affect iCould Reminders and iCloud Calendar on Apple’s servers?

    It Almost feels like there is a saboteur that has been planted in their OS department.

    ...because it affects iPhones not servers? it's causing iPhones to crash not services?

    please tell me that this isn't really going that far over your head?

    It seems like it's related to date/time, but also to local notifications, as in those coming from within apps on devices themselves, as opposed to those being pushed remotely.

    I’m well aware of the differences between server and local notifications. Apparently, my original post was too vague, so I’ll try again.

    These reports are sourced from Twitter and reddit. When Apple confirms this, then it will be something to take notice.

    In the meantime, I’m not going to panic in the streets like my iPhone is going to melt or think about how I’ll get through the rest of my life without Waterminder notifications.

    Hit me last night, in a bar of all places. I briefly wondered whether I may have dropped it.

    Anyway after seeing this story I tried the date reset which worked but I couldn't access WhatsApp. So I have just turned off all notifications and set the date back to auto. That worked, stopped resetting and I can access all my apps.

    Please Apple: Don’t introduce a new bug when you fix this one.

    If only they were that lucky. They could try to weed that person out. How do you weed out a growing incompetence. Does Apple outsource their QC or something?

    This is the worst iPhone bug ever.. my iPhone SE is completely unusable, the respringing thing cut off every function ..the solution is to set yesterday date, I’ve done , it’s the only way to use my iPhone .. but this is ridiculously disturbing and distorting my calendar, events, emails, messages, calls, etc.., everything keep trace of time.
